“Pizza perfetto”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Lovely local restaurant. Nothing pretentious, good honest food and decent cheap vino della casa too. An Antipasti Toscana is more than enough for two to start, with a great selection of local cured meats, a cheese and a couple of crostini. A Pizza Quatro Stagione to follow makes this a superbly authentic Italian dinner at a fraction of what this would cost in UK, or indeed elsewhere in Italy. Highly recommended for casual al fresco dining. Only slight problem for us was that a nearby table lit up their cigarettes, since the under cover outdoor dining area must be officially designated as "outside", which is a shame. Also the TV was on for the football, but thankfully without sound.

“Excellent Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

We went twice to this restaurant while staying nearby, the food was very good but service was mixed. Once we were in the outside dining area and felt sometimes that we had been forgotten. I actually had to go a search for someone to pay. The second occasion we chose an inside table and this was much better. The pizzas were excellent and I would recommend it to anyone

“Excellent restaurant with great friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

We stayed near Casole D'elsa for a week and visited this restaurant three times! The staff were lovely & friendly. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Would be the first place I would return to if we return to this area and would definitely recommend for a tasty, yet cheap Italian meal!

“Nothing fancy, but a good choice for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

The prices are great and the food is solid. The pizza was very good. Cute town and great location. The house wine was a bit rough.
